A GOLD TIARA FROM THE 4TH/3RD CENTURY B.C.

THRACIAN TREASURES AT  THE ARCHEOLOGY MUSEUM IN SOFIA, BULGARIA.
I find this  tiara extraordinarily beautiful and am wondering what happened to the Thracians and what happens to other great civilizations. Bulgaria is considered the geographical cradle of the Thracian civilization which lasted  from the 4th millennium B.C. to the third century A.D.
The first historical reference to Thracians is found in the Illiad; later Greeks and Romans called them “barbarians”  and eventually they were overrun by “barbarians” – Celts, Huns, and conquered by Alexander the Great and the Roman Empire.
Cheers,
Elisabeth and Natasha
